Documentary Watch: Forks Over Knives

What has happened to us? Despite the most advanced medical technology in the world, we are sicker than ever by nearly every measure.

Two out of every three of us are overweight. Cases of diabetes are exploding, especially amongst our younger population. About half of us are taking at least one prescription drug. Major medical operations have become routine, helping to drive health care costs to astronomical levels. Heart disease, cancer and stroke are the country’s three leading causes of death, even though billions are spent each year to “battle” these very conditions. Millions suffer from a host of other degenerative diseases.

Could it be there’s a single solution to all of these problems? A solution so comprehensive but so utterly straightforward, that it’s mind-boggling that more of us haven’t taken it seriously? Read the full synopsis of Forks Over Knives and watch the trailer after the jump.

Documentary Watch: Make Believe

 

In Make Believe, director J. Clay Tweel follows six adolescent outsiders who all share an extraordinary passion: the art of magic. Armed with great skill and a dazzling array of illusions, these teenagers embark from the varied hometowns of Malibu, California; Chicago, Illinois; Capetown, South Africa; Littleton, Colorado; and Kitayama, Japan to attend the annual World Magic Seminar in Las Vegas, where they each hope to be named Teen World Champion by master magician Lance Burton. The film’s six subjects are remarkably assured and dedicated entertainers. Offstage, however, they face the diverse obstacles of adolescence: loneliness, high parental expectations, the pressures of impending stardom, abject poverty, and the deep desire to fit in. With great humor, honesty, and heart, Make Believe reveals an enduring world that audiences know little about while it also explores a time of life no one ever forgets. Watch the trailer after the jump.

Paul Cowan

I’ve been quite impressed by the most recent endeavors of young Chicago artist Paul Cowan. After seeing presentations from Cowan at the Green Gallery East, Devening Projects, and most recently, Alderman Exhibitions, something seems really fresh about the work. Quick, gestural paintings paired with a sort of “dry humor” install techniques utilizing pedestals, chairs and balloons amongst other things in unconventional fashions. Check out photos from “Breaking the Law“, ” Three Card Monte“, and ” Causality Without Cause” after the jump.
